Lyon Printemps Musical

Get in touch

When music finds its way where it is not expected…

Since more than 20 years, Musicalta opens classical music horizons with several significant events. Since 1996, we successfully organize each summer a Festival and an International Academy in the heart of the French region of Alsace. In 2013, the creation of “Grandes Scènes Musicalta” was the next logical and meaningful step in Musicalta artistic path, with several concerts of amazing and outstanding artists organized in the most prestigious concert halls in France. The new project “Lyon Printemps Musical”, in the heart of the city of Lyon, will have people look at classical music with brand new eyes.

When talking about classical music, we often picture it in an opera concert hall or in Music Academies. It is time to change habits and have musicians play in places where classical music is not usually played and taught! At the heart of Lyon’s heritage, the masterclasses open to the public and the concerts organized will transform the visitors in spectators and listeners.

Presenting young talented interpreters

Take music out of places where it is usually heard

A few words from the artistic director

Opening the horizon of classical music in the city. It was around this desire that the Lyons Spring Music project was born.

This need to build for the existence of a different project has crystallized around two axes: bringing music out of places where it is usually played and taught and also associating together young promising students and well-known soloists within a project combining master classes and concerts.

We then naturally turned our attention to the exceptional heritage of Lyon and more particularly to the museums.

In reply, these great institutions, the Lugdunum Museum, the Tissue Museum and the Printing Museum and the Saint Irénée House, enable us today to take up the challenge by giving meaning to this new urban adventure of Cultural mediation.
Thus, from April 16th to 22nd in the museums of the city of Lyon, the master classes and the concerts on the place will transform the visitors into listeners. As for the music lovers, the music will lead them to (re)-discover the wonderful collections of the museums.

At Salle Molière, the stage will welcome concerts with renowned musicians after the “Levers de Curtains” with young bright performers. At the Musicalame bookshop, a dedication Rencontre will allow all the public to immerse themselves in the world of artists.

Lyon Printemps Musical has chosen excellence by bringing together great performers around the project and having many prestigious musicians who joined in the adventure: Marie-Annick Nicolas, Julien Beaudiment, Pascale Feuvrier, Virginie Robilliard, Françoise Friedrich. These brilliant musicians have chosen to mentor talented young performers who will perform at the Grand Mosaic Hall in LUGDUNUM – Museum and Roman Theatres during two concerts on April 20 and 21.

We invite you to discover this first edition of Lyon Printemps Musical which has the ambition to create a link around music in the city of Lyon.
